Ryzen 7 5700G vs Core i3-12100 specs and performance

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Ryzen 7 5700G performs better than the Core i3-12100. Despite this, the Core i3-12100 has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Ryzen 7 5700G has significantly more cores than the Core i3-12100. Indeed, the Ryzen 7 5700G has 8 cores compared to 4 cores found in the Core i3-12100. It also has more threads than the Core i3-12100. Our comparison shows that the Ryzen 7 5700G has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i3-12100. Also, the Ryzen 7 5700G has a slightly higher turbo speed. The Core i3-12100 outputs less heat than Ryzen 7 5700G thanks to a slightly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

Most CPUs have more threads than cores. This technology, colloquially called hyperthreading, improves performance by splitting a core into multiple virtual ones. This provides more efficient utilisation of a core. Indeed, the Ryzen 7 5700G has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
